At Home

I am currently in my hometown until June 29th. It's nice to be home, relax and spend time with my parents and brother before really getting into the working world (even if I am also home to get my wisdom teeth out!). What's also great about going home is that it means not spending a lot of money! My parents are kind enough to pay for all my food, I get my Mom's wonderful home-cooking plus 2 of my all-time favorite restaurants are here: a phenomenal Thai restaurant and a Australian pie store - mmm, curry pies!

However, I have made one rather large purchase thus far, in the form of a new wallet by Michael Kors. The price? $161.38, including tax. I absolutely love it - genuine leather and a beautiful baby blue color. It's simple but durable and it fits all the receipts I horde! I also went to Victoria's Secret to buy some new underwear (to the tune of 5 for $25) and lo-and-behold, my VS giftcard that had been in my wallet for nigh on 2 years happened to have $30 on it. Therefore, I didn't have to shell out any more money on that shopping trip! And successful trip it was. Now, about that gorgeous B. Makowsky purse I saw... ;)

I love getting new wallets! I think I have like 6 or 7. Kind of ridiculous I know, but some purses can't have black or brown wallets...

Good luck with those wisdom teeth, I hated getting mine out!

Once you invest in a good wallet, it lasts you forever. I bought a Gucci wallet 4 years ago and I'm still carrying it- it's functional and yet elegant.

@penny - Thanks! The surgery went great, I am now cuddled up in my bed at home reading PF blogs, working on mine, etc :)

@distar - I am excited about the wallet. It was not incredibly expensive (my max to spend was $200) but I love it! Having expensive taste sometimes does pay off in terms of longevity :)

$161 for a wallet!!!! WOW! I thought I was living the high life when I bought sunglasses for $25! :) I'm sure the wallet is gorgeous (and yes, I am jealous).
